My guess is that this is pretty common. Personally I sometimes send
with my work address from home or my home adress from work, and I
don't think I'm alone int that.
And if you check this mail, you'll probably see that the relay is
from bredband.net (or something like that, it's the ISP I use at
home), while the from is truls.org (wich is my own domain, with mail
server completely independent from any ISP). If I actually do send
from the storing mailserver for truls.org (wich I never do), se relay
will actually be a frukt.org host (because everything at work, where
I've got my server, is sent through that gateway).
And my laptop has a whole list of relays it can send through,
depending on how it's connected to the net...
Demanding that the from address should in any way be conne cted to
the relay is simply not a good idea.
